FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSER NEWS: JAKE BARRETT OFFICIALLY NEW CLOSER IN ARIZONA

Arizona Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale has endorsed Jake Barrett as his new closer in place of the struggling Tyler Clippard.  Barrett has pitched to a glowing 2.79 ERA and 1.22 WHIP this season for the D-Backs and he has collected 39 strikeouts in 38.2 innings.  While he did give up a home run in his save chance Saturday night, Barrett successfully finished it off the game. 

Analysis:  Third closer already this season for the D-Backs as they dealt Brad Ziegler and Clippard was plain bad.  Barrett should be added in all formats as teh volatiity really gets crazy among closers with Aroldis Chapman, Mark Melancon, and now Andrew Miller all being dealt.
